Hello: What is the meaning of “I Owe, Therefore I Am” in the following title? –
Does it refer to someone owing someone something? Thanks!
The famous phrase from the philosopher Descartes is “I think, therefore I am” which originally denoted that the minimum evidence for the existence of a self is that the self thinks. It has been changed many times as a pun to succinctly state the importance of various things. In this case, presumably, the author is making a case for either the importance of debt or the universality of debt.
